    Dear colleagues,
    I wanted to make sure you saw this opportunity to contribute to the next IASSIST conference, highly relevant for this group. The extended deadline is fast approaching, 1st December.
    IASSIST and the ACMLA would like to invite you to join us for the 49th Annual IASSIST conference and 57th annual Carto conference being jointly held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, from May 28-31, 2024 to talk about the future of data in libraries, archives, and data services.
    The conference will be held in-person, centering networking opportunities and interaction.
    We welcome submissions for papers, presentations, posters, demos, workshops, and lightning talks that are of general interest to the IASSIST/Carto communities or embrace our conference theme – Uncharted: Navigating the future of data. This conference challenges you to chart new pathways and to think about using data to navigate our way to a better future together.
